Lou Davenport has always done things by the books, leading her right down the aisle to the man of her dreams... It isn't until she meets Gabe, the handsome graphic designer with the drool-worthy British accent, that her dreams start to verge onto a new path that she never saw coming. But is Lou willing to give up her perfect marriage for a life with someone she just met? Can Gabe offer Lou a new perspective that shakes up her entire world?

Battling with the opinions of her childhood best friend, her over-bearing mother, and her own guilty conscience, Lou has to make tough decisions about her job, her friendships, and most importantly, her marriage.

Can one passionate week in August change the entire course of Lou's life? Only she can decide.

A thought-provoking take on the classic beach read, "The Second Week in August" will have you thrown into a love triangle like no other. Which side will you take? 

Author's Note: Completely unintentionally, this novel ended up being very loosely based on Taylor Swift's "Folklore" album. Throw it on in the background, look out for little references hidden throughout, and don't forget to let me know if you spot the clues ;)
